This growth is driven by the rise of the information technology which enabled new products and services - as well as the search or  renewed business models.   Cloud computing, which enabled the shift from on-premise software to software as a service and the new business models of the sharing economy (e.g. car-sharing) and solutions selling are examples of this evolution.    Subscription based pricing has many advantages - but also comes with challenges.      In this interactive pricing course, you learn how define your pricing plan, build and price your packages and implement your subscription model to win new customers, to retain them and optimise your profits.
